Great feature on Christopher Lee Sauvé; gay artist with a great, great line of street wear.

I support Zendaya Coleman for calling out (of all people, the relatively kind) Giuliana Rancic, who noted that Zendaya looked like she might “smell of...weed” because she was wearing her hair in dreads.
Though I don't doubt that Rancic was not trying to express contempt for black people, her defensive response that it wasn't about race isn't really true. More accurately, it wasn't intentionally about race.
It also raises some interesting questions about the existence of shows like Fashion Police (which I realize a lot of my readers love).
So many times—always?—in cases like this, people are quick to say that it's humor. Get a sense of humor!
That's such a thoughtless (in the literal sense of having no thought process behind it) proposition. It's okay to say anything if the intent is to be funny, and anyone directly targeted, affected or offended by it has to either laugh or shut up? That's an example of policing language, which is what defenders of comedy at all costs usually cite whenever a joke is perceived to have gone too far.
So if you disagree with anything I'm saying in this post [insert clown horn], too bad, it's meant to be humorous!
I once did a scathing post that I semi-regretted, but the concept was: I pulled one of those would-you-be-caught-dead-in-this-outfit? type of pages from a weekly tabloid and I found photos of all the celebs who were on the panel. They were not extremely attractive, nor were they good dressers, and this is coming from a guy with about three pairs of pants and seven T-shirts. I posted them and roasted them. One of the women wrote me, humiliated and angry, and tried to excuse it by saying the magazine wrote most of the stuff for them to say anyway.
I've also commented, and did so again on Facebook regarding the Oscars, on the ridiculousness of having certain people being put forth as arbiters of beauty and taste in order to judge others. The optics of seeing some of these commentators in comparison to the women they think didn't quite do it right stink...worse than pot.
And there is no denying that the feel of a barb changes based on the age and the gender and the race and so on of who is making the barb. I don't think Zendaya needs to get a sense of humor in this case. I think she's got every right to be ticked off, not least of all because she looked outrageously beautiful and chic, and if that's not the point of Fashion Police, what exactly is?

This is the latest in a series of posts by The Underwear Expert.
For those of you not in-the-know, Nelson Marin and Marvin Garcia are both models for underwear brand Baskit and boyfriends in real life. They share more than the frame in this Valentine’s Day photo shoot by Rich Mackey Photography. As you’d expect, the couple gets cutesy sharing kisses and butt grabs. They can’t keep their hands off each other, and or their pairs of Baskit underwear.
Marvin is wearing a pair of Just /b/ Briefs, currently 50% off at $11. The bubblegum/grey contrast of the underwear looks great under the maroon pants he wears, and even better out of them. The cut forms to Marvin’s legs and backside nice and snug for a casually sporty pair of underwear. Nelson is wearing a red pair of Light Briefs, currently 40% off at $13. These briefs have a more masculine appearance. Their body is red, contrasted by a white waistband with the brand name repeating around the elastic in navy lettering.
Before we tell you to look through the gallery below to see more of the couple, you should be warned, the photo shoot is pretty adorable. If you are spending Valentine’s Day alone this year, you may want to skip this one. It could make you bitter.
